COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX)- More than 1,000 student cadets lined the route of the motorcade carrying former President George H.W. Bush to his final resting place on the Texas A&M campus.

The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets also lined the route of Barbara Bush's procession in April when she was laid to rest outside the George Bush Library and Museum.

An honor guard carried Bush's casket down the steps of a special funeral train that arrived in College Station after a roughly 70-mile trip from suburban Houston.

Former President George W. Bush and other family members stood on the Texas A&M University campus as a band played the school's "Aggie War Hymn" fight song.
